When I was young,,a long time ago.

We did not have computers,internet, etc. One of my first memories of my life, is "why is my Mom crying on my birthday?" my bday 11/23/60 I was turning 3 years old. President Kennedy was killed yesterday. I grew up through Vietnam,WaterGate,9/11 and other "moments" in our history.
Point of my post is simple to all younger members of DU,, Please do not have to make a post like this 50 years later, we are witnessing history, pay attn. Learn,, read articles,,not just snips, because in 50 years,, you could be making this post Im making, but you have the tools to KNOW.

1. K&R, I've been telling my kids that this is historic and the reason I'm following so close is

... because its historic and a direct attack on our US democracy.

3. it is not reading minds

it is we lived through it,,and it our responsibility as older folks to pass on our knowledge,, just like when we were young,and prolly ignored a lot of what our Dads said. Young folks decide what to take. ThanksLay
